This is a great little short order diner near the legislature building and the NC Natural Science museum and NC History Museum. The burgers and dogs are great, and I enjoy the cheesesteak as well. They have a lot of other sandwich options as well. The orders are always fast so it's great for to-go orders too and it's very... More

This is a cute little diner that I happened to find that was across from the museum of history. It was crowded the day I went which generally indicates it is good and it was, friendly staff, a little slow but worth the wait.

A delicious quick lunch to enjoy on your museum visit. Adjacent to the History Museum and within easy walking distance to the Science Museum, Pharaoh's is an excellent stop for lunch.

My family and I visited the history museum on vacation this past June. we ate here for lunch because of its location next to the museum. It is small, and it was very crowded. The lines were also long. The food was typical fast food and average. The prices are good and family friendly. It is worth it to stop... More

This is a nice fast food joint at the North Carolina Museum of Natural History in downtown Raleigh, NC. It offers up pretty decent swiss burgers in a setting that looks like a retro diner - with its red and white chairs with a Pharaoh's head at each table! Staff could be a bit more friendly but overall good quick... More

Had lunch here while touring history museum. Just a chicken salad sandwich which was ok. They charged 35 cents for a cup of water. The sandwich board advertised Lays potato chips but served Wise potato chips. Only open 11-2.

This restaurant is okay. It's good, just not great. I don't really have anything bad to say about the place, it's just average in my opinion. The service was quick and pleasant. The restaurant was clean when I arrived. By the look and feel, it is a restaurant that you would see a lot of children on school field trips... More

Small selection of food and although I would not classify this as fast food, service was pretty quick. Food was good and we would return here on another visit. They do close early on the weekend though so check the hours before planning lunch here

Thank Ray B
